    G. Willow Wilson's journey into The Dreaming concludes as Lindy's story comes to an end, but it's only the beginning of Ruin's journey. I loved how this story arc concludes. The final conversation that Dream has with Ruin is both philosophical and truthful. In short, Ruin is given free roaming rights to pass between The Dreaming and Waking Worlds. Lord Dream has given him the license to go and find his true love. This gift comes with a warning. A warning that will make the future adventures of Ruin that be more interesting. Read Full Review
